Marketing or really just that bad?
I was surfing over some of the show's message boards, hoping I might find a definite date for when the show starts.. but several people brought up an important factor... If you remember, they were doing Ads for FE like it was cool to have one every commerical break for about 2 weeks.. this is when it was on Monday.. Then the day switching started.. Thursday, Friday, etc.. And according to the ratings it did worse on these days,... But if you also remember, the commericals ended about the 2nd episode, then its all about American Idol, Tru Calling, and Wonderfalls (which ironically is gone now too).. oh and the swan.. anyhow.. Maybe the show is less popular that its just the people who are NOT on the boards like these where we specifically talk about it, just didn't know where the show went? Kind of like "The Family", it just kind of dropped off the face of the earth (I forget if it was for the War in Afghanistan, or 9/11 itself, either way its a good reason, but I had no idea what happened, when it'd return, etc..) Then when it came back, no one really knew, except the hugely devoteed fans.. so maybe, thats the downfall for the show?
Or on the flip side, the show was just that bad and no one liked it regardless... Which is a possiblity too.. it seems to draw a cultish following, you either like it and love it, or you hate it, and hope it burns, and then based on that, maybe we just have the Salem Witch trials going over again practically.. (Burn the Witch, if she escapes, she is a witch, if she dies.. well... she is just hiding it, thats all..)
